Hymn – Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendour – Lyrics
Lord, enthroned in heavenly splendour,
First begotten from the dead,
Thou alone, our strong defender,
Liftest up thy people’s head.
Jesus, true and living bread!
Here our humblest homage pay we;
Here in loving reverence bow;
Here for Faith’s discernment, pray we
Lest we fail to know thee now,
Thou art here, we ask not how.
Though the lowliest form doth veil Thee,
As of old in Bethlehem,
Here as there Thine Angels hail Thee,
Branch and flower of Jesse’s stem.
We in worship join with them.
Paschal Lamb, Thy offering, finished
Once for all when Thou wast slain,
In its fullness undiminished
Shall for evermore remain,
Cleansing souls from every stain.
Life imparting Heavenly manna,
Stricken rock with streaming side,
Heaven and earth with loud hosanna
Worship Thee, the Lamb who died,
Risen, ascended, glorified!
